Reports claim that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been reported to Dorset Police for an incident that occurred as he celebrated Raheem Sterling’s late winner against Bournemouth.
English publication ‘The Daily Mail’ reports that a steward at the match has made a statement to police alledging that the Argentine struck him during the celebrations.
The incident occurred after England international Sterling’s 97th minute goal completed City’s comeback from behind and earned Pep Guardiola’s side all three points.
The overzealous celebrations led to Sterling being shown a second yellow card and two City fans being arrested by the local constabulary.
Dorset Police released a statement saying: “During the last minute of today’s AFC Bournemouth Premier League fixture, Manchester City scored a winning goal. The goal was followed by excited celebrations where a number of Manchester City supporters encroached on to the pitch.
“Two male spectators from Manchester were arrested as a result. No other arrests have been made in relation to this incident.
“Officers are reviewing CCTV of the pitch encroachment as part of an ongoing investigation to establish whether any other offences may have been committed.
“This investigation is in the very early stages and, if any further actions need to be taken, this will happen in due course.”
It is understood that at this point, Aguero has not been spoken to by police about the steward’s claims.
The accusations cap off a frustrating day for Aguero, who was dropped to the bench in favour of 20-year-old Gabriel Jesus for the game.
